Passages

The King James Bible turns 400 years old this year, and you need only drive a mile in any town to see its influence today. Oklahomans can now see the Bible and its many layers of time with a new exhibit of antiquities at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art. Passages: Experience the Bible Like Never Before is on exhibit through Oct. 16. Passages is a 14,000-square-foot exhibit that highlights more than 300 items from the Green Collection. The private collection was named after the Green family, founders of Hobby Lobby stores, and contains 30,000 pieces of ancient and medieval manuscripts, textiles, early printed materials and related objects. Exhibits include pieces from the Dead Sea Scrolls, a portion of the Gutenberg Bible and first editions of the English Bible. The exhibit is also interactive, which makes rediscovering a text that has inspired billions of believers a fascinating study for viewers across faiths and cultures. For more, go to www.okcmoa.com.
